Annual Pecatonica River Clean-Up Sunday, July 25
From press release
The United Sportsmen’s Youth Foundation, along with Rock Hollow Conservation Club, will hold its annual Pecatonica River Clean-Up Sunday, July 25. Saturday, July 24, from 5 to 11 p.m., a fund-raising banquet will include silent auction, raffles and country music by Cortney Alber.
Volunteers are needed to collect trash not only from the river, but also the shoreline and the nearby prairie path. Service clubs and individuals are encouraged to assist in the clean-up. A cook-out for all volunteers will follow clean-up. Last year, nearly 75 people went out on the river, cleaning out several truck-loads of debris, bottles, plastic and more out of the Pecatonica River.
The United Sportsmen’s Youth Foundation is a non-profit organization that works to purchase large tracts of habitat, provide and preserve multi-use habitat for children, teach children that personal involvement can positively impact wildlife and habitat, and work to unite sportsmen, agriculture and communities. Donations are accepted.
